I have a deep respect for school teachers. The patience they have to be kind, caring, and teach our children is a special quality not many people possess. High school teachers especially. I was a teenager once. They aren’t fun. I am currently trying to stunt my children’s growth with mass amounts of coffee in hopes they don’t grow up (I kid I kid!)
You might think that young kids would be easier. They say such adorable things (I cried the day my daughter stopped calling a sandwich a “namich”) and they are so full of curiosity and wonder. Let me tell you though, that the opposite is true. The first time I volunteered in M’s preschool classroom I was overwhelmed. So many 4 year olds and they have SO MUCH ENERGY. I was exhausted after 4 hours (actually more like 30 minutes.) Props to you preschool teachers. You deserve wine-ALLTHEWINE.
I whipped up this snack mix for my day to bring snacks to school. I only used 1/8 cup of taco seasoning to keep it tame for the kiddos, but if you like it zesty I would suggest adding the full 1/4 cup.
- 4 c. rice chex cereal
- 4 c. oyster crackers
- 4 c. Gold Fish crackers
- 4 c. pretzel sticks
- 1/3 c. canola oil
- 1/4 c. taco seasoning mix
